The Peugeot 208 made its debut in 2012. Since then, its good looks, exciting road dynamics and practical interior have made it a hit in the Supermini segment.
French car manufacturer, Peugeot has a long history as the maker of vehicles in the exciting supermini market. Who can forget the Peugeot 205 manufactured during the 1980s, winner of ‘car of the decade’ from Car Magazine along with a What Car? ‘car of the year’ award in 1984. The Peugeot 205 GTi reached iconic status among hot hatch enthusiasts, and decades later, Peugeot continues to introduce exciting new models to their range, such as the Peugeot 208.
The Peugeot 208 was launched in 2012 replacing the Peugeot 207 model. This supermini features a sleek, contemporary design, and is available in a range of specifications with engine sizes varying from 1.0-litre up to a 1.6-litre fuel injected option. The 1.6-litre engine offers impressive performance, with a top speed of 134mph and reaches 0-60mph in 7.3 seconds. For those looking for an even more powerful ride, a GTi trim level is also available on models made from 2012 up to 2018. The Peugeot 208 GTi is a sporty 3-door offering 205bhp and 0-60mph in 6.3 seconds.
If you are shopping for a used 208, you will find first-generation models registered between 2012 and 2019. A second hand 208 is the ideal used hatchback for anyone looking for a smaller car that doesn’t compromise on style or features.
The latest Peugeot 208 launched in 2020 with a bold, striking design that gives the car a sporty feel. This new edition of the popular 208 has been awarded the title of 2020 European Car of the Year and is available in petrol, diesel, and electric variations. 2020 models of the 208 also feature the new PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® which includes touch screen controls.
Making the decision to buy a Peugeot 208 is easy; the hard part comes with deciding which trim level and specifications to opt for as there is an exciting array of features available. An extensive range of features come as standard, which is great news for anyone shopping for a second hand Peugeot 208.
